A cyclist in Sunderland who had stopped to exchange details with a driver after a collision was fatally struck by another car, police have revealed.
Stan Coates, 55, of Sunderland, died in hospital after being hit in Burdon Lane at 16:45 BST on Friday.
How unlucky can you get, Hit by a car, stop to exchange details and get hit again. The story seems a bit sketchy at the moment because of the van taking the bike away. Strange one.
To compound Mr Coates luck, not that it sounds as if it would have saved his life, he could not be flown to the nearest hospital because of the snow stopping the helicopter from landing.
